I want to look good every day. I have my moments but they're few and far between. I also don't have a lot of money so it has to be something inexpensive, preferably quality

I'm so frigging annoyed, wrote the longest answer and is disappeared on me when I pressed preview :@ So here's a quicker less detailed version:
For your face pluck your eyebrows in a nice fashion and use a brow highligher and color takes very little time with big pay-off. Here's a good product link and here's a good tutorial for explaining how to use them http://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=p8p0_3czgUg (he's awesome with everyday makeup so watch the rest of his videos if you're interested)
For hair, use mousse applied from roots and down to the rest if you've thin, flat hair. Bigger and/or frizzy and/or long hair often needs a few drops of oil on the tips. You can do expensive argan oil or cheap vegetable cooking oil with almost the same result (just don't take cooking oil that smells bad!).
A pair of tiny earrings that you use everyday looks stylish without effort and lasts long, think something this size or even smaller link
Clothing is hard to give advice on without knowing anything about your or where you live, but in general spend WAY more on outerwear than inner. A well matched jacket, shoes and & bag/rucksack/whatever-works-for-you gives a very nice first impression. Expensive shoes are so much more price effective than cheaper. A pair of $70-100 shoes can loot stylish for YEARS if you care for them properly (sales assistant can tell you how), while $10 shoes will probably look nice for five minutes, hurt your feet and then break. And then you'll have to look for another pair that matches your outfit. For all your outerwear think good FIT, looks CLEAN, not WORN DOWN (unless perhaps shoes, some look better worn) and MATCHES well with the rest.
Hope this helped! :)0
